Motion in a Circle

Centripetal acceleration and force

Introduction

Centripetal Acceleration

In the following interactive, you can adjust the radii and angular velocities of two different objects and observe their changes in centripetal acceleration according to the relationship $a = r\omega^2$.

See if you could obtain the same magnitude of acceleration with different values of $r$ and $\omega$.
